The first thing I would do if I won the Lottery is I would buy my dad a nice car and a large home with a gourmet kitchen, because that is what he has deserved his whole life for raising me the way he did.


House,Car, boat, the usual:

I would then buy myself a vacation home on the island of Aruba, a house in Marblehead Massachussetts (My favorite town in the world) and a penthouse in New York. I would buy a BMW X5 and a BMW M5 Convertible. I would also buy a Sunseeker yacht and also a 20 foot ribcraft RIB with twin Honda 250hp Four-Stroke Engines. Yes I am very specific about what i would want :)


Electronics: I would buy myself the new 24 inch iMac and have it mounted to the wall then connected the best projector money could buy in a home theater room. I would then get a MacBook pro loaded to the maximum and also one for my dad. I would then buy a 60 inch pioneer elite for my bedroom and also I would get the 16gb iPhone and a MotoRazr2 for when I go on trips and don't want to carry around an "expensive" phone.


I would also donate $1,000,000 to the private school I went to when I was young because they were the ones who paved my path to success and kept me away from drugs and alcohol.

1) Pay off all my debt

2) 6 months of expenses in bank

3) Retirement funds fully funded/maxed out

4) Trusts (or equivalent) set up for my younger brother and sister

5) Invest in mutual funds to grow more money

6) Build at least 3 homes. One here, one in the Rocky Mountains, one on a beach somewhere. All will be "off the (power) grid" homes

7) Buy every car I ever wanted, including a couple of custom construct

8) Buy every piece of technology (tv, computer, video game, etc) that I want

9) Take a cooking class

10) Get a degree or three

11) Find a decent girl

12) Start a business

13) Hook up family and friends

14) Be generous

15) Live on the interest payments of my investments

Well if I won million dollars; firstly I would invest a major share of it in buying shares or saving it in a reputed bank for my future. Secondly I will donate some money to the organizations that take care of the animals. I would also like to donate money to the disaster-affected areas.

Easy; put it all in the bank. Use enough of it to buy a house in the country, pay all bills off in advance for the next 50 years. Get myself a new car. No need to be wasteful, just finally will be able to retire. Probably cough up a bit for the kids, college funds, etc. Live off the interest, escape the rat race and unemployment...


One tiny little issue is I live in Utah. No lottery. Oh, that must be why I'm moving to Idaho ;)

Hrm $180M...

New Jeep Wrangler, Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger (6.1L V8 of course). Move to Colorado, Buy House, Rock Climb.


Oh yeah, and of course buy my parents/grandparents a new house wherever they want, new cars ect, pay and debt they have ect.

-I'd put a few local politicians in my pocket and proceed to have that 30mil-180mil go to work for me.

-I'd also start carry bullets again...

-My wife wants a top end SUV (only because my mother brags about her decked out MDX)

-Buy my dad his dream car - A very particular Ford T-Bucket

-And in this economy, I'd definitely pick up as much commercial real estate as possible.

I'd travel a lot, donate some to charity of course, buy lots of books, though most likely I'd most likely have lots of cash left over and I just donate the rest. I like challeanges- all that money would make life less interesting
